The Nine Network is a major Australian commercial free-to-air television network that is a division of Nine, with headquarters in Willoughby, a suburb located on the North Shore of Sydney. The Nine Network is one of three main free-to-air commercial networks in Australia.

The logo which consists of a numeral 9 beside nine dots arranged in a 3x3 grid is one of the most iconic logos in Australia between 1969 and 2006, and again since 2008.

Nine (1970) 2

The National Nine Network started using this logo on 9 July 1969, it uses the regular numeral "9" with the nine dots sitting next to it. For black and white broadcasts, the full logo was only in white. When the network began colour transmissions in 1975, the text "LIVING COLOR" would be added below it. Two different variants were used, one of which separated the dots and the numeral slightly as seen in the logo above.

This logo was designed by Brian Sadgrove and it would later be adopted by STW-9 Perth in 1978.

Nine (2001)

The logo was redesigned by Velvet Mediendesign on 1 January 2001, with the introduction of digital TV in Australia and new graphics. On 1 September 2002, the dots were changed back to spheres from the 1997 logo as well as the numeral becoming 3D for their "7 colours for 7 days" presentation package. The previous 1969 logo continued to be used as a secondary logo alongside this logo until 29 January 2006.

2006–2008[]

Nine (2006)

On 30 January 2006, the network and its affiliates relaunched their logos to coincide with Nine's 50th anniversary.

The numeral was reworked with a few rounded corners eliminated in process. This logo would use a blue square featuring the numeral altered, which saw the removal of the nine dots again. The graphics package used during that time was designed by Bruce Dunlop Associates.

Later on 15 January 2007 the blue square became solid, and in May they partially relaunched the nine dots, which are visible on every second surface of the box. This logo continued to be used in Perth and Adelaide stations until March 2010, when they reinstated the nine-dots logo.

2008–present[]

Nine logo (2008)

On 14 January 2008 as part of a major relaunch, the Nine Network added the dots back into the logo (after a 2-year absence) and they are now a bit larger. The blue square was removed from the number 9. The slogan used with this logo was "we♥TV", which was also used earlier in December 2007 with the previous logo.

Unfortunately, due to affiliation disagreements, the Perth and Adelaide stations under WIN ownership did not have the dots being added back into the logo until March 2010.

On 1 February 2009, the dots are once again 2D as part of a short-lived rebrand, which lasted until 26 September.

2008–2009[]

Channel-9 2008

As a part of a major relaunch, the entire logo became 3D on the same day. The nine dots are represented by translucent 3D discs during that year. The music used throughout the network's ID's and promotions was "Smile" by The Supernaturals. This logo would only be used in 4 metropolitan markets.

2009–2012[]

Nine Network (2009)

On 27 September, the dots are changed to spheres yet again when the network's original slogan "Welcome Home" was launched. It also began to re-use the iconic "Still The One" theme tune into one of the ID's. The dots were made smaller, like the 2001 logo and in March 2010, the dots were reinstated in both Perth and Adelaide markets.

2012–present[]

Nine2012 Glossed Logo

On 15 April 2012 during the premiere of The Voice, Nine changed its identity to apply the logo in different colours such as blue, red, green, purple, yellow and orange. It is also reminiscent of the 2002 ID package, and coincidentally the identity for the network has been launched a decade ago.

2015-present (secondary)[]

Nine (2015-)

On 26 November 2015 when the network underwent a major rebranding, Nine modified their 2012 logo and it would now be used as a secondary logo alongside the previous one. Also, the multi-channels GO! and GEM were renamed 9Go! and 9Gem respectively when the main channel relaunched its HD service on channel 90.
